> Did you read Cassidy''s article?

I was challenging what *you* (Alejandro) wrote re the impact of of the
charge that Marx was "internally inconsistent" on the "common people."

No, I haven't read Cassidy's _The New Yorker_ article (btw, even in New
York, most "common people" don't read the up-scale liberal magazine, _The
New Yorker_).

*Whatever* he wrote, unless he furnishes evidence concerning the
influence of Marx's alleged "internal consistency" on the
(mis)understanding by workers of Marx's writings, is irrelevant to the
point I raised.
